Illinoisans are getting creamed when it comes to their property taxes.

How do we know?

We’ve compiled a list that shows the home prices and average taxes paid by some counties in Illinois. You’ll notice these Illinois counties have much higher tax rankings than their average home price rankings. What does it all mean? Basically, that Illinois is paying much higher property tax rates than other places in the country.

Ridiculous? We think so, but click here to take a look for yourself.

thank a democrat, they have destroyed this state and doing a pretty good job on the country too!

Straight forward mathematics.... The schools portion is the largest element, and continues to rise, despite stagnant household incomes, stagnant student performance, and declined home values. Until these costs are pegged to the surrounding constituency, the public sector wins. And don't forget, to pay your 55% of your property taxes fast, because the entitlement State of IL is in trouble and needs it. Until business and individuals leave the state, this will only continue to a breaking point, just not exactly sure when.
